Sport package or no sport package

If I decide to just go with a stepronic tranny, I dont have to get the sport package. (smg you have to) I dont know if I can justify the sport package. I would change the sway bars & get lowering springs anyway. But I would not get sport seats & the anti roll feature. I think I cal live w/o the sport seats. How is the anti roll feature? Is it alone worth $3300?

A lot of people get the sport package for the anti-roll feature, which is very nice for spirited cornering. If you are going to change to another sway bar and lowering springs, you may find better use for that $3k. I opted not to go with the sport package this time and spent that money on comfort seats and logic 7. Then again, people who get the sport package swear by the sport package and would get nothing else. Its a tough decision, and you have to think long and hard about how you will be driving the car.

I didn't get it either. Go test drive both and see which feels better for you!
